Spacious has a small core team that initiates and guides the sited experiments. From that base, the community engages a transdisciplinary constellation of cultural organizations, educational institutes, researchers and creative practitioners.
Spacious is founded by architect and creative practice researcher Renske Maria van Dam. She envisions Spacious as a more-than-architecture atelier in which creative practice research coincides with the careful construction of architectural life.
Spacious is inspired by spatial artist Cocky Eek. Her spatial experiences connect us with the deeper layers of ourselves and of our surroundings. As Cocky would say:
'Perceiving directly that there is no separation between the environment and us is profoundly different from thinking about it.’
Spacious closely collaborates with performer and choreographer Kenzo Kusuda. His workshops inspire to train our sited awareness. Simply with the body's movement on an almost empty stage, he is able to reveal that which is the invisible.
